Rogers’ beer has a complex mix of malts combined with the unique Little Creatures Hop character. The objective is to consistently craft a fabulous, easy drinkin beer, with just the right amount of flavour for West Australian hot days and barmy nights.

Deep amber colour with a thin off-white head. Malty and fruity aroma with a spicy touch. Sweet fruity flavor with a medium hoppy bitterness. Thanx to sk8viking for this one.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 24, 2005
Superior mid-strength amber ale in the American style. It has many of the characteristics of the excellent Little Creatures pale ale but without the body or alcohol. I wouldn’t choose this over Little Creatures but it does provide a flavoursome alternative when alcoholic intake is an issue. Poured a plummy brown colour with a healthy head. The nose wallops you with grapefruity/floral Little Creatures hops. The body has that typically unsatisfying mid-strength leanness. Flavoursome - lots of puckering citrus and some strong tea characters. Good hop/malt balance. (Bottle)

Stew41 (1808) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - FEB 20, 2005
Pours a weak head. Nice colour - clear dark amber with nice hue. Expressive nose, hints of chocolate, some sweet malts (crystal?), quite nice. Mouthfeel failed to live up to the palate - just too light. Has some ok nutty notes and some ok bitterness on the finish but just not enough excitement in the flavour department.

ALLOVATE (2652) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2005
This one I tasted from the bottle into a dimple glass. Poured an auburn, dark gold with a fluffy loose off-white head, that slowly formed a dense half inch of foam (5 for 5 on appearance). On the nose, it had an unusual peaty husk, like freshly turned soil, and a tangerine whiff underneath. Mouth feel was light and slightly watered down. Nutty flavours of cashew, pecan, and walnut seemed to balance the fruity esters of lemon and orange. A little too subtle, though, flavour wise (I like my ambers full bodied and strong) but still not a bad brew.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2004
Bottle: Poured a dark amber with a medium white head made up of big bubbles. Aroma was predominantly fruity with some herbal hops, and faint crystal malts. Crystal malts dominated the flavour with some earthy undertones from the hops. I found the beer somehwhat watery and powdery in the mouth. Not satisfying enough to be a good session beer. However, it did grow on me as it went.

beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 11, 2004
Dark amber in colour with huge thick head. Floraly hopyy aroma. Hard to describe the tatse but well balanced.

madquacker (1074) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JUN 27, 2004
Nice copper colour. Lots of citrus lemony flavours in this with the Little Creature Pale Ale hops taste in the background. A bit too watery & bland though for me.

Nemo (100) - Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - JUN 24, 2004
This would have to be one of the best midstrength beers around - it has more bite than most of "mids" in which I have tried in the market. Golden with a decent head with hints of citric, fruity caramello taste.
